Green Blocks Finished

The later blocks definitely look better than the first few, but I doubt I'll take the time to make more of them. These blocks are easy, but VERY time consuming. Admittedly, I did not have a tidy workstation set up with everything in reach so I was getting up to iron and cut quite a lot. 

To be honest, I don't love these blocks. I've made quite a lot of scrap quilts over the past couple of years and many of them had green fabrics so my green scrap supply was pretty picked over. These blocks would have looked a lot better with more medium greens in them. 

Anyway, this is my planned arrangement of the rainbow blocks when I'm finally finished making them.

I've already finished the red and yellow blocks a couple years ago, so I'll be back at it when purple, blue or orange next come up.

  1. You might not be wild about them, but I think your blocks look great! I love your final design and can't wait to see it come together!

  2. Sorry the blocks are so time-consuming but they are beautiful!

  3. Wow, what a stunning design. I will really look forward to seeing thi one evole.

  4. Well, you've been pretty diligent and seem to have made fairly quick work of a time-consuming job. I love your plan for the blocks. It really will look like a stained glass window.

  5. Yes, I made your design for my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding last October. I figured each block took 3 hours and the whole quilt took me 220-250 hours. But it is stunning and it may be the most beautiful quilt I ever make. Sharon, if you would like to see a photo, email me at — Quilter65

  6. Your blocks will SEW be worth the effort when your quilt is together!!

  7. is that thin black in between the greens? I think it looks really nice.
